 This is a feature that I would even write a patch for myself ( I probably 
will ) unless Joshua Leung is interested in doing it himself. At this stage 
in Blender's features, in order to use empties as rig handles in pose mode 
you have to use a bone and have the bone drawn as the empty.Why not just 
enable the empty to be able to be used without the bone to object (empty) 
drawing mechanizm and if necessary make empties have the ability to become a 
part of the bone (or rig's parent / child hierarchy) in pose mode.It's less 
code overhead and would make rigging much more powerful and simpler.

I will also send this post to the developer's forum for feedback.
